JOINT REPORT OF VICE-PRESIDENT AND DIRECTOR 41 



Richard Milliken Building — This building, erected 
through the generosity of Mrs. Deborah Allen Milliken for 
the care of children, is one of the two buildings on the 
hospital's grounds not in use liy the hospital. This building 

litis b n iiui.i't'Upled for a number of years and consequently 

is badly deteriorated and considered noil- res torable. The 
Board of Administrators of Charity Hospital have entered 
into an agreement with the Board of Supervisors of the 
Louisiana State University to effect an exchange of this 
property rind the Peigado Building fur ■' Iruct nf land mi 
Oravier Street owned by Louisiana Stale University. The 
lirmiml occupied by the Milliken Building and the Delgado 
Building is needed by Louisiana State University for the 
expansion of their Medical School. 

In the basement of the Milliken Building, the hospital 
operates a printing shop in which are printed tin- greater 
number of all of the stationery forms used in the hospital, 
thereby achieving an annual saving of thousands of dollars. 

Lapeyre-Miltenherger Building — This building, which 
was donated to the hospital for the care of convalescent 
patients, is being used for that purpose. 

I Hiring the year, the interior walls and ceilings were 
painted, metal window screens were installed and repaired, 
and showers were purchased and installed for patients' use. 

This building contains 104 beds devoted to the care of 
patients who are convalescing from acute illnesses; in ad- 
dition, there are 16 beds assigned to the Tulane Medical 
School for a special metabolic study. 

The upper two floors of the building have been set 
aside for use as living qu:i graduate nurses assigned 

to the hospital. The lower floor of tin- building houses the 
Physical Therapy Department and is very well equipped 
for the care of patients who are in need of physical therapy. 
The basement of this building contains store rooms and an 
occupational therapy room for use by convalescent patients. 
The work done by these patients assists in their recovery 
and, at the same time, helps to provide them with ■ • means of 
earning *i livelihood when period of convalescence is over. 

Because of the increased number of polio cases, the 
Poliomyelitis Center building is becoming Inadequate to 
house ail of its patients. Upon inspection, the Lapeyre- 
Miltenberger Building was found to be adequate. Since this 
building was donated to the hospital for the care of eonvales- 
it in patients, approval from the heirs had to be obtained. 
In April of ibis year, the Lapeyres gave their consent to 
temporarily house polio patients in the Convalescent Home. 
'I'h. changes necessary to convert this building into a Polio 
Center cost approximately $6,388.34. 

Delgado Building — This building, which was donated to 
tile bospilal i"i t-ntv of surgical diseases, is under lease, 
to Hie Louisiana State Board of Health as a Venerea] Disease 
Control Hospital. The site occupied by this building is part 
of the ground desired by the Louisiana State 1'nlversity 
for the expansion of Its Medical School. 

During the past year. 4, (Ml cases were treated for 
venereal diseases in this unit. 



42 CHARITY HOSPITAL— 194S-1950 



Repairs, amounting to $1,350.00, were done on the orna- 
mental parapet wall on the east and west sides because 
of damages during a storm. 

Poliomyelitis Center— Built in 1934 as a temporary 
structure, this building was formerly known as the "Female 
Medical Building." Consisting of three doors, it houses a 
Dietetic Laboratory for student nurses and a Physical 
Therapy Department and recreational area for polio patients 
on the first floor. The upper two floors have been devoted 
entirely to the care of acute and convalescent polio patients. 

In the past few years, it has become increasingly ap- 
parent that thin structure was Inadequate for the large 
number of patients handled each year. In April of this \ 
therefore, plans were completed to discontinue the use of 
this building as a Poliomyelitis Center and transfer the 
patients to the Lapeyre-Mlltenberger Convalescent Home. 

The Poliomyelitis Center is operated in conjunction 
with the National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis and 
contains all t>f the latest and most modern equipment for the 
treatment of this disease. 

Colored Tuberculosis Building — Extensive renovations* 
to this building have been largely completed. These renova- 
tions included relocation, enlargement and rearrangement 
of the Out-Patlent facilities, replacement of the lighting 
system with fluorescent lights, the installation of a new 
sterilizer room and the conversion of three recreational 
rooms into wards for the accommodation of forty new 
patients. 

The upper three floors of this building provide accom- 
modations for 165 colored tuberculous patients. The first 
floor is occupied by a Radiographic Unit, An Out-Patient 
Department. Pneumotherapy Department and a Lung Sta- 
tion devoted to the detailed study of chest diseases. 

Dibert Memorial Building — This entire building wa« 
donated to the hospital by Mrs. Eve Christine Dibert for 
the care of acute, surgical tuberculosis cases, broadly inter- 
preted us meaning the care of cases of tuberculosis whleh 
are amenable to treatment. Of modern fire-resistant con- 
struction, (his building accommodates 250 white patients 
for In-patient care, a clinic for out-patient care, and a 
radiographic unit, a library, and recreational and occupa- 
tional therapy facilities for patients. 

Musser- Gordon Memorial Hospital— During the past 
year, this hospital has been operated as ft separate unit 
under the control of Charity Hospital. located at the site 
the Lagarde General Hospital and occupying several of 
the temporary buildings of this abandoned Army Hospital, 
the MuKser-Gordon Hospital has provided accommodations 
for the custodial care of far-advanced and non -treatable 
cases of tuberculosis. During the past year with the pro- 
vision of adequate funds, its staffing was increased 
that accommodations for 100 patients, both white and 
colored, are now available. 

Isolation Building— This building is devoted exclusively 
to the care of Infectious and contagious diseases, and l s 
the only facility of Its kind in and around the city ot

clusively to the student nurses in the Charity Hospital 
School of Nursing, 

During- the past year, waterproofing of this building 
was completed and for the first time since its construction, 
tills building was completely repainted. 

This building is no longer large enough to house all 
the nurses, so plans are being made to erect an addition or 
another building which will accommodate approximately 
4M people. However, funds have not been granted by the 
federal Security Agency for this project. 

Graduate Nurses' Home and Old Ambulance House — The 
old ambulance house, located at South Villere and Tula tie. 
was demolished during the past year and construction was 
begun on the new male In terns' Home by the Glover Con- 
Btruotlon Company. Plans and specifications for this build- 
ing were drawn up by August Perez and Architects, and 
federal funds were secured through the Hospital Construe- 
tiun (Hill-Burton) Act, The cooperation of the State Hos- 
pital Board and its director, Mr. Jesse Bankston, are grate- 
fully acknowledged. 

The Graduate Nurses' Home, situated next to the new 
building on Tulane Avenue across from the Main Building 
of the Hospital, served throughout the year as living quar- 
ters for graduate nurses. 

Sisters' Home — This building, which is on the corner 
of Claiborne Avenue and Gravler Street, is occupied ex- 
clusively by the Sisters of Charily who have been connected 
with this hospital since 1S34, and contains their living quar- 
ters and chapel. During tho past year, the interior and 
chapel were repainted. 

Hospital Laundry — All of the hospital's laundry is done 
in this plant, which is in use constantly throughout the 
year. Inning the past year, this department laundered 
5,940,636 pounds of linen and has a totnl of I JO employees. 

Hospital Garage — The lower floor of this building is set 
up as a garage ami ambulance house with quarters for 
ambulance drivers who are on duty.

doctors who arc on the staff of this Institution. The remain- 
ing half of the upper floor Is occupied by the automotive 
work shop and is used for repairing and maintaining the 

automotive equipment owned by thin instltutinn. 

Maintenance Building — This building located in the 
rear of the Power Planl was considered to be a Are hazard 
and was demolished. The space it occupied is now used 
as a parking area for trucks. A garage has been built on

Hospital. The State Hospital Board paid for this structure 



4-i CHARITY HOSPITAL— 1949-1950 



New Maintenance and Future Garage Building — This 
building which whs completed last year Is used as 
Carpenter Shop, Constructed of one story with mezzanine, 
It occupies the entire State property In the back of (lie ex- 
isting Animal House. 

Warehouse — Necessity for expanding this building has 
become mine and more apparent as it Ik much too smalt fur 
the demands made upon It. 

Main Powerhouse — Excellent service has been rendered 
by this building which contains the power plant. Ice pli 
air-conditioning system, and other machinery necessary for 
the operation of the hospital. An Ammonia Curapn •.-• 
purchased for the Ice Plant in the amount of $8,592.00, 

Automotive Equipment — During the past year, the fol- 
lowing automotive equipment was purchased and is render- 
ing excellent service: 

1 M- ton Steel body truck for the. Traffic Department, 
1 Sedan, Chrysler, for the Executive Department.

Patient's Department of Medical and Surgical Care During the 

Services y«ar 1949*1960, L'55,337 patients were seen In the Charity 

Hospital Admitting Rooms, 101. 31S in the Accident Rooms, 
75,142 patients were admitted to the wards for a total of 
842,826 hospital days, and there were 545,125 patients' visits 
In the Out-patient Department. In addition, there were 
10,549 births and 17,738 surgical operations performed. 

Ii was very fortunate that the Hospital was aide in 
.-■-cure a full Intern and resident staff for this year, which 
numbered 128 interns and 228 residents, and the most 
earnest and unsellish cooperation on the part of these 
physicians was necessary in care for the tremendous volume 
Of patients going through the Hospital. 

Those members of the Visiting Staff who arc active 

have displayed during this year a commendable altitude. 
because Of which the Hospitals patients received the most 
i iieni care, despite numerous handicaps — a critical short - 
age of run sing personnel, severe curtailment of operal 

i time, lack of adequate clinic space, and an inadequate 

laboratory service (the Inadequacy of the laboratory service 
is directly related in its Inadequate space, staff and budget 1. 
To the active members of the Visiting Stan", the Hospital 
owes its everlasting gratitude. These men devoted a con- 
siderable part of their time to work at Charity Hospital. 
answering calls to the Hospital any hour of the day cw 
nlj,'ht, conducting the teaching and training of the Intern 
and resident staff at absolutely no cost whatsoever to the 
Hospital. 

The Hospital continues to provide for its residents and 
interns complete training in almost every fieid of Medicine. 
This tralnhiE is only possible through the cooperation of the 
two great medical schools of Louisiana the Louisiana State 
University Medical School and the Tulaue Medical School. 
The "Farming-Out Program" of advance residents from this 
Hospital to other Slate Hospitals has been continued in 
an Improved and expanded form. This program, which 



JOINT REPORT OF VICE-PRESIDENT AND DIRECTOR 45 



as its aim the Improvement of surfing- and care of patients 
In '.inlying State Hospitals, in addition to the rounding 
nut of the training of residents, la being conducted on a 
cooperative basis between the Louisiana State Hospital 
Board, the two medical schools and Charity Hospital. 

The tremendous strides which are being made in Medi- 
■ in- today are making It imperative that Charity Hospital 
Bnd increased funds to provide to its volunteer staff all of 
those facilities which are so vital to the performance of 
g«>od work. The interests of the Visiting Staff are very 
wide and varied, and embrace not only the practical, but 
also the theoretical and academic aspects of Medicine. To 
bold this interest and to aiti tnd outstanding talents. 

It is Imperative that adequate facilitieK for practice and 
clinical research be available. 

Appended below is a list of publications of the Staff 

nf Charity Hospital during the past fiscal year. A review 

this list will indicate the scope of work accomplished 

l>> the Visiting Stall", all or part of which was rii-tie at or 

through facilities of Charity Hospital. 

Psychiatric Unit— This unit has continued to provide Departmental 
the only active treatment for acute psychiatric disorders Units 

liable In and around the city of New Orleans for the 

Sew i ulatlon. Consisting of s* beds, this unit has 

'en. i. -red excellent service treating 62S cases during the 
past year. 

Because at Its Inadequacy In size and unsatisfactory 

arrangements, plans have been worked up for expanding 
this unit and Improving its facilities. Construction should 
begin sometime during the next fiscal year. 

Premature Infant Unit — During the past year, this unit 
handled a total of 774 premature Infants, Its capacity is 
100 Infants; the daily average number of infants it handled 
was 74 ami lln- maximum number !■!•. 

mi and operated with assistance from the Chil- 
drens' Bureau of the Maternal and child's iieaiiii Depart- 

i .,r the raited stales I'ni.iie Health Service, this 
null has. in addition to caring for premature infants, con- 

,l! ,! a post . graduate teaching program tor nurses in the 

'tire infants. 

During the past year, this unit was equipped with a

« CHARITY HOSPITAI^lS49-195IJ 



The X-Ray Department offers diagnostic services 
throughout the entire Institution, Including units in the 
Accident Rooms, Clinics, Ti is Buildings, and the 

Infectious and Contagious Unit, as well as the main diagnos- 
tic division, which Is located In the main building of th.> 
hospital. During the past year, 131,662 patients were ex- 
a mined and 252.055 films were processed. Fluoroscopies 
numbered 10,648,

for X-Ray Techniciana. During the paat year, 18 now stu- 
dents were admitted and 16 completed their training. 

Pathology Department— Under the supervision of Dr. 
Emma S he department continues to be one Of the 

iiioxi important departments in this institution. 

Some idea of the scope of work done in this department 
can be realised by the fact that approximately 687,302 
laboratory tests were made during the past year and, In 
addition, over 14.9S3 Hurgical .specimens were recei\ 
sectioned, and examined. During that same time, there were 
L.S9S autopsies held This departim-m is in desperate need 
of additional space and personnel. Part of this need has boon 
answered through rearranging some of its facilities to better 
advantage. However, the department is still very much 
cramped for lack of space which cannot be made available 
for sometime. 

The Pasteur Institute, which is under the supervision of 
llif Pathology Department, received 2,089 patient*. 

The Pathology Department in this institution conducts 
a School of Medical Technology for the teaching of medical 
laboratory technicians. During the past year, 26 studc 
were admitted and J4 completed their training in this 
school, which i> approved. 

Out- Patient Clinic* — During the past year, there were; 
545,1 j;. patient-Vislta in the White and Colored Clinics of 
this hospital. 

department and the Admitting Rooms of the hos- 
pital are under the supervision of Sister Ignatia Insofar as 
patients, employees, and nurses are concerned. 

The volume of patients being seen In the clinics has 
In the past few years grown rapidly so much so that the 
space occupied by the clinic which formerly was more than 
adequate is today grossly insufficient. Unless .some ae- 
oeptable and practical plan for limiting the number or 
patients seen in these clinics dally can be worked out, the 
calibre of medicine practiced here will inevitably deterloi 

Operating Rooms — On the 12th floor there are 16 active 
general surgery rooms, in addition to eye. ear, nose anil 
throat, cystoscopic, bronchoscoplc, and plaster rooms, which 
are 13 in number. These operating rooms are in full usage 
from J a. m. to 3 p. m. daily. In addition, from two to three 
rooms are kept busy throughout every 24 hour period carry- 
ing out iioi-rgency operations. 



JOINT REPORT OF VICE-PRESIDENT AND DIRECTOR 47 



During the past year, 17,738 major operations were 
performed in this hospital. 

Dietary Department — The Dietary Department, under 
the supervision of Sister Euphemia, has served efficiently 
throughout the year. There were 3,953.395 meals served 
by this department: 83,347 infant formulas were prepared 
and served: and 71S.140 special diets were prepared and 
so-vinl duniiK tlic nasi year. 

The School of Dietetics, conducted In the hospital, is 
under the supervision of the Dietary Department. This is 
an approved school, and during the past year, 12 students 
graduated of whom three remained to fill vacancies on the 
dietary staff. 

One of the most progressive units of the Dietary Depart- 
ment Is the Nutrition Clinic in the Out-Patient Department. 
In addition to the number of patients who receive diet 
instructions (36,650 this year), the Clinic offers valuable 
teaching experience for the dietetic intern, and for the first 
time this year, the student nurse. 

Electron Microscope Department — This department is 
under the supervision of Dr. Robert Nieset. Director of the 
Biophysics Laboratory of Tulam- 1" diversity. 

The electron miscroscope. which is capable of resolving 
particles a hundredfold smaller than that of the best optical 
microscope, is proving its worth more and more as time 
goes on. Among others who have already been greatly bene- 
fitted by this device are the chemist, the biologist, and the 
physicist. 

In order to utilize fully its potentialities, certain prob- 
lems relative to the preparation of specimens have been 
attacked and more satisfactory results are continually being 
found. 

Charity Hospital's electron microscope to date has been 
used in certain projects carried on by the Tulane Medical 
School and the Department of Agriculture's Southern Re- 
cta] Research Laboratory. Some work on chylomicrons, 
which are found in the Wood during the digestion of fat, 
lias been done. Very good pictures have been obtained of 
a Certain strain of viruses in their attack on Escherichia 
'eii bacteria. In the field of industrial chemistry, this 
microscope has given much information on the structure 
tif primary and secondary walls of cotton fibres. 

Recently, several members of LSU's Department of 
Anatomy were given a demonstration of the instrument with 
some of its accomplishments; and plans arc being made to 
initiate a project with them. 

It has been felt that not enough medical researchers 
have been acquainted with the instrument at Charity Hos- 
pital and are not aware of its availability for their use. 
In order to correct this situation, a series of three lectures 
nil the operation of the microscope, specimen preparation, 
and significant results obtained are under preparation, and 
will soon be ready for presentation, [t is hoped that this 
will stimulate other new projects. 



48 CHARITY HOSPITAL— mii-Hi.iO 



During the past year, the facilities of the electron 
microscope laboratory have been improved. The photographic 
dark mum has been renovated. New techniques with ex- 
isting shadow-casting equipment have been developed. Power 
tinea coming into the laboratory have been more heavily 
fused to prevent Interruption of work. 

It should be noted that the many other departments 
at Charity Hospital with whom we have worked, have 
shown the utmost cooperation and courtesy. 

Nurses — The nursing problem continues to be the i, 
serious individual problem facing the operation not only oi 
this hospital but of all hospitals. 

Charity Hospital has endeavored to meet this situation 
by making available living quarters for use by the graduate 
nurses assigned to the hospital; by paying salaries to the 
fullest extent of our ability; and by enlarging the Cha 
Hospital School of Nursing. By means of intensive recruit- 
ment work, we have been able to maintain an acceptable 
number uf undergraduate student nurses, without whose 
assistance. It would have been Impossible to operate this 
hospital. 

During the past year. 110 nurses were accepted 
students, 32 were accepted from other schools as affiliating; 
students: 7 nurses were accepted for special training; and 
13!* nurses were graduated. In addition to the above, the 
hospital la now operating a School tor the training of Nurs 
Aides and a School fur the training of Practical Nurses, 

Anesthesia — Gas Therapy — Blood Bank — These depart, 
meats are under the efficient supervision of Dr. John Adrian i. 

The Department of Anesthesia administers anesthetics 
tn all surgical cases subjected to operations in the hospital. 
In addition, it operates a clinic in which nerves are blocked 
for tin specific purpose of controlling otherwise intractable 
pain, Equipped to administer all types of anestheties, thin 
department has rendered invaluable service to the patii 

ana hospital. The department also t luels the training 

of doctors in the h.l.i uf Anesthesiology and conducts a ; 
gram for training graduate nurses to become nurse : ;ui<»s- 
thellsts. 3J nurse-anesthetists were granted certificates from 
the School of Anesthesiology during the past year. 

The lias Therapy Department conducts the administra- 
tion of oxygen and other gaseous therapeutic agents In the 
hospital. In addition, this department is responsible for th,. 

.Hi n uire of ill equipment necessary for the conducting 
of Inhalation therapy. 



The Blood Bank during the past year collected 24.181 
jiiats of Mood from donors and provided 21,590 pints of blood 
fur transfusions. All of the necessary storage, testing, typing 
and cross-matching for blood to conduct all of thesi 
fusions was done In the Blood Bank. Refrigeration equipment 
for the storage of blood was completely overhauled and fovu- 
new units especially designed for Blood Bank use w, 
purchased. Air-conditioning; so badly needed in the Bl.m.i 
Donor's Station was installed and placed In operation. 



JOINT REPORT OF VICE-PRESIDENT AND DIRECTOR 41i

REPORT OF SISTERS DIVISIONS 109 



ANNUAL REPORT — SISTERS DIVISION 
July 1, 1949 — June 30, 1950 

The Annual Report of the Sisters' Divisions for the Fiscal Tear Ending 
June 30, 1950. Ik hereby submitted: 

The over-all planning, coordination, and control of the activities of the 
Nursing Department, the Schools of Nuretng. both Proteaatonal and Practical, 

the Dietary 1 >e,,art.nent. and the Housekeeping Department, ail cantered In 
the Slaters' Division, have functioned smoothly and satisfactorily during the 
past fiscal year. The Sister* directing these department* will make detailed 
reports so this report will be brief and of a general nature. 

We have found that the reorganization of the Nursing Education an. I 
Nursing Service Division into two separate divisions, which was effected at 
the end of the pasl flscaJ year, has brought about better nursing care to the 
nl and better methods In the teaching of nurses. Through joint and 
separate meetings of the committees for both divisions, there has been Rood 
coordination and smooth functioning. In the Nursing Service Division, we 
have had to cope with an inadequate number of graduate nurses. We h ten 
t,, commend the Sisters and Nurses Cor their generosity in taking on addi- 
tional duties to supply for the vacancies In the graduate nurse staff. 

In March of this year, the School for Practical Nurses was established 
f..r the purpose ..f supplementing the nursing service and helping to provide 
adequate nursing care to the patients-. The School f„ approved by the Louisi- 
ana State Board of Practical Nurse Examiners, and pre, 
the numerous positions available in hospitals and other health 
Air hough the School has been functioning only six months, we foresee tfreat 
benefits t.. nursing service in our Hospital through the training of this group. 

The Dietary Department has completed another successful year. The high 
standards of food service to patients and personnel have been maintained and 
the training of dietitians has met the requirements of the American Dii 
Association. 

The housekeeping throughout the Hospital and living uuarters of •- 

si.tmel has been efficiently ean-ied on [hroi.mli the [iasi \ -. A series of Illus- 
trated lectures to the personnel of this Department has resulted in Hi 

pri.veinent of methods ..| cleaning and In the morale of the workers. 

Respectfully submitted.

The Nursing Service Department is responsible for supplying the needs 
,.f the in-niiiii-nts at Charity Hospital in staffing the various divisions under 
tins Department with professional and non-professional nursing pers.' 
In addition to the services of those which are rendered by graduate tii 
nurses' aides, attendants, and ward aides, a group of practical nurses 
trained to supplement the existing need. 

To the Nursing Department Ik assigned the specific responsibility of pro- 
riding safe, adequate, and satisfying patient care through the medium of 
good aiirstag. The amount of nursing service, professional and non- profes- 
sional, which the hospital provides Is a significant index of the quality of 
nursing that It gives. For this reason, it is the aim of this department to 
Increase the number of daily general nursing hours per patient in an effort 
to Improve the quality of this care. 

With the Introduction of early ambulation in the hospital, the more 
appropriate terms "general nursing staff", and "general nursing hours", have 
been substituted for "bedside nursing staff", and "bedside nursing hours".

Projects 

Efforts are being put forth to ascertain the number of desirable as well 
as reasonable professional and non-professional workers needed at Charily 
Hospital for the dally number of patients. Studies and research will continue 
In ureas to determine: 

1. The average general nursing hours needed per patient, during each 
twenty-four hours. 

2. The proportion of general nursing hours in be provided by professional 
and non-professional personnel. 

3. The number of patients per day .Supervisor. 

4. The number of patients per head nurse. 

5. The number of patients per afternoon assistant supervisors. 

6. The number of patients per night assistant supervisors. 

7. The number of patients per nursing unit helper, day and night. 

A job analysis for every worker, in addition to a functional analysis, tn 
determine in what consists "Nursing Service Activities." and In what consists 
"Nursing Care" activities will be carried out. 

The Nursing Department formulates and executes administrative policies 

In nursing service referring to the Director of the Hospital and his assistant 
Clinical Directors, problems and recommendations requiring their special 

consideration or attention of the hospital Board of Administrators. 

Steps aie taken to establish and maintain effective Inter-departmental 
relationships In an effort to coordinate all planning fur put lent care. 

En-Service courses are conducted during the course of the year for Nurse 
Aides and Attendants. 

Recommendations 

It is recommended that there be a common meeting ground where the 
representative or the central administration, the medical staff, and the nursing 
staff, may discuss together their corporate responsibility for the care of 
patients and to coordinate independent plans an,] Mud mutually satisfactory 
solutions for inter-related problems. It is suggested that a commit tee oi the 
tors, other medical representatives, the Director nf ihe Sisters' Divisions, 
und her Department Heads, with such others as may be indicated In an Indi- 
vidual situation serve In this capacity. This recommendation Is made with 
the premise that an objective approach toward mid a sympathetic understand- 
ing of current problems, be the basis upon which the committee function, and 
that mutual respect and appreciation for the Contribution of each represent- 
ative be a baste objective. 

This Department is most appreciative of the consideration given our 
many requests In the establishment of Nursing Service positions, and in par- 
ticular* for the new equipment and supplies obtained En the Nursing Bel 
Divisions fru' the- Improvement of patient care.

ORGANIZATION 

The school of nursing has completed Its first year as a separate division 
from the nursing service department. While the primary aim of the school is 
educatlon of its students, rather than service to patients, the school |, r ,,i ides 
a large part of the nursing care given to patients and la therefore vitally eon. 
cerned with conditions of nursing service j n the hospital, Tu effect proper 
coordination between the nursing service department and the Horsing school, 
a Joint executive committee functioned during the year, on mutters of mutual 
interest to both divisions. An overall organisation of the professional stairs of 
both divisions also serves to coordinate the entire group and to keep all 
Informed, 

SCHOOL RATING 

We are happy to report that In a national classification of nursing si I Is 

by a committee representing six professional nursing organizations, our 
school was i his year ranked in the top 25<a of the nursing schools In the 
country. The six main areas studied were: student health, curriculum, clinical 
facilities and experience, library facilities, qualifications and slw >>r teaching 
staff, and Instructional salaries. Although our overall rating was high, we 
fell short in the area of student health, This will be discussed later in Un- 
report. 

FACULTY 

The full-time administrative and teaching staff in the nursing school now 
numbers thirty-four. In addition, part time teaching is carried on by more 
than forty others including doctors, dietitians, a social worker, a pharmacist, 
physical therapy technicians, and nurses. 

There Is a direct relationship between the preparation of the faculty anil 
the achievement of students, and consequently, faculty members are being 
urged continually to strengthen their backgrounds by enrolling in university 
courses, Institutes and workshops, and by attending professional meetings. 
Sister Pauline, Associate Director of the School, is on leave for master's work 
In nursing education this year. Hy I lie end of summer session, alt 

full-time Instructors except four will have degrees. Three faculty members 
attended the national nursing biennial convention In San Francisco, May 8-18, 
t'.C.o. 

The faculty Is organized for democratic administration of the school. An 
executive committee formulates policies, plans major activities and changes, 



ll-i CHARITY HOSPITAL— 1949-1950 



and acts on serious student problems. Four other committees deal, respec- 
tively, with; admissions, curriculum, clinical Instruction and nursing arts, 
and guidance. 

PROGRAM OF STUDIES 

The school is constantly reviewing and enriching the professional curri- 
culum, by means of which we prepare our students to meet the future de- 
mands which will be made on them. The wealth of clinical experience at 
Charity Hospital enables the student to make immediate application of theory 
tn practice; and the presence of full-time clinical instructors on the wards 
provides ready assistance tu students In making this application. A foi 
clinical Instruction program provides an average of five hours of clinical 
teaching at the bedside weekly. 

Our curriculum Is lacking, however. In one type of experience which is 
of great importance to nurses, namely, public health nursing. Our goal is to 
prepare our students to promote health and care for the patient, both in the 
hospital and in the community. We cannot prepare nurses for community 
nursing, or public health nursing, unless we send them out into homes and 
clinics in the community, under the supervision of public health nurses. Suofa 
a program could be arranged through our out-patient department and we hope 
In iiCL-iimpllsh it during the coming year. It will necessitate the employ mint 
nr a public health nurse, and it will deprive the wards of some houi 
dent service, but it will help our students to see the whole care of the patient, 
preventive as well as curative.

The number of students In the school has decreased steadily since the 
war iniil is now ihivvn to 245. which Is still larger, however, than pre-war 
llgures. This year only one class was admitted, in September, 1949. Efforts 
in recrull 8 Class tu begin in Fein- nary. 1950, were unsuccessful. 

STUDENT WELFARE 
The exterior of the Student nurses' residence was waterproofed during 
nasi year and the interior was painted. The residence now presents a very 
attractive appearance. With the reduction In the size of our student body, the 
resilience nmv tales the affiliating students, who were housed previ- 

ously on hospital floors. 

As mentioned before, our school rated low in only one area In the na- 
tional classification of schools this year, and that area was student health 



REPORT OF SISTERS DIVISIONS US 



Over and above the general routines of physical examinations, methods of 
cnrinu I'm- sick st uib-nts, and general preventive measures, the committee 
considered factors which relate to fatigue, and conditions which promote or 
hinder the carrying out of the educational purposes of the school. 

Total hours of planned theory and practice tor students should not exceed 
forty-four hours weekly, Our students are still on a forty-eight hour week, 
and pressure in the hospital often requires overtime work. In connection with 
this, the educational director of the Louisiana State Nurses Board of Ex- 
aminers has also recommended, in her annual survey, a maximum 40-44 hour 
week for students. 

The number of hours which students spend on afternoon and night duty 
also studied by the committee. Uttle supervision is provided students on 
these shirts, although they often carry heavy responsibility. V 
in report an excessive amount of afternoon and night duty for our students, 
which no doubt affected our rating. 

We also fall short In the number of weeks of vacation recommended for 
students. Instead of twelve weeks' leave in the three-year program, we give 
Ollly ten weeks. 

We should like to call attention to the fact that we have been unable to 
dy these conditions because of the great need for the services rendered 
by our students. Future ratings of the school may depend on our correcting 
these conditions, however. 

A recommendation has been pending for several months for the creation 
of a position of health director In the school of nursing. The health 
Is now carried by the supervisor of the doctors and nurses infirmaries, who 

too much to do to administer this program adequately. We ln< 
Board will see fit to approve this position. 

ADVISORY COMMITTEE 
ay hospitals have profited by the appointment of advisory committees 
for their schools of nursing, with representation from the hospital sad from 
ou [.side interests. In December, Ut-i'f, we requested that such a committee be 
named by the Board of Administrators for the following purpose: 

■'To promote the Interests of the School of Nursing through: (a) 
study and Interpretation of its needs as an educational Institution; 
(b) promotion of a progressive educational program la keeping with 
the alms of the school; and (c) assistance in attaining and maintain* 
lng recognition of the school by agencies or accreditation." 
The Board acted favorably on this request and has selected men and 
women representing the following Interests: general education, mod 
nursing, public health, the clergy, business and civic Interests, and the legal 
sion. Several members of the hospital and nursing school administra- 
tive staffs will serve as ex-officio members. Mr. W. K. Sehuilngkamp has 
been named as the Board representative on tbi tte*. 

It is anticipated that the committee will soon begin to function and will 
help us to Improve our school program. 

THE SISTER STANISLAUS MEMORIAL 
The student nurses' residence was this year dedicated as a memorial to 
Bister Stanislaus, who was so long associated with Charity Hospital, ami 

whose death occurred in June. 13-I't. ,\ bronze ]il;n)iie ,.ver the entrance i« 
the building, bearing the words "The Sister Stanislaus Memorial" and a 
Nightingale lamp, was unveiled at the dedication ceremonies on February 5. 
We are happy to have before our students this constant reminder of 
i. tie whose life was an inspiration to nurses.

ANNUAL REPORT OF THE DIETARY DEPARTMENT 
July 1, 1949 — June 30, 1950 



The Annua] Report of the Di<-t:n-y Department for the fiscal year begin- 
ning July 1, 19-19 and ending June 30, 1950, is herewith respectfully submitted: 

ACTIVITIES AND ACCOMPLISHMENTS 
Twelve dietetic interns completed their year's work during this fiscal 

period, and of these graduates, three remalneil in Mil vacancies ml tli 
jtaff. The course attracts highly Qualified candidates from all parts oi 
United States and Canada. 

Again, the American Dietetic Association approved the Internship, busing 
their approval on material submitted to them, as the biennial Inspection was 
not scheduled tor this year. 

Our affiliation with Hotel Dion for i-rivate Tray Service has continued 
throughout thla year and has proved very satisfaeto: 

In cooperation with Tulane Medical Staff, the Dietary Department has 
been assisting in some research they are conducting In computing diets in 
relation (■> cardiac patients. 

One of our most progressive units is the Nutrition Clinic In the Out-Patient 
Department. In addition to the number of patients who receive diet Instruc- 
tions (36,650 this year) the Clinic offers valuable teaching experience for the 
dietetic intern, and for the first time this fear, the student nurse. Here the 

student lias an opportunity to investigate and evaluate the home situation 

and often offer suggestions in budgeting the patient's income, 

A valuable visual aid In the ti.nn of wax food models has been purchot 
and Is gratefully acknowledged. 

Complying with the recommendation made by the American 
Association, the teaching service for the dietetic Interns has been extended 
and greatly Improved. This has been made possible with the allowance of an 
additional dietitian. 

In the newly established School of Practical Nursing, the Department has 
assisted in teaching lot) hours of Nutrition and Diet Then 

Tin- Director of the Department was active on ihe School Lunch Sub- 
committee of the New Orleans Child Health Committee, a group cone 
wiih the health of the children of New Orleans. 

The Colored Employees' Dining Room was completed renovated, .m.l a 
modern, compact Cafeteria Unit was installed. This resultant change lias 
bolstered employee morale considerably. 

STATISTICS 

The patient and personnel meals served during this year showed an 
Increase in number. Comparative figures follow: 

1948-1849 1949-19SO 

Personnel Meals 1,381,993 1.401 

Pattern Meals 2.i6i>,929 2.435,168

Musser-Gordmi Hospital Meals 16.898 27,871 



Total Meals 3,653,601 3,953,395 

Special Diets Served 878,440 719.140 

Infant Formulae Prepared 74.663 S3.347 



DIET AH Y DEIWKT.MKNT 117 



During February, ihe Musser-Gordon Hospital initiated preparation of 
their own food instead of having It sent from the Main Building Kitchen. 

The granting of two additional dietitian positions, one enabling the Dietary 
Department to supervise food service at the Contusions Unit and 1'olio Center, 
and the other assisting the teaching staff to perform their Increased duties, is 
especially appreciated. 

The purchasing of two much needed dish machines for the Colored Tuber- 
cular t'ntt and Polio Center, and the installation of [ire-wash sinks in the 
pantries, have proved most helpful. 

Respectfully submitted.

HOUSEKEEPING DEPARTMENT 



Tin annual report of the Housekeeping Department for the liseal year 
beginning July 1, IMS and ending June 30, 1950 is herewith submitted. 

The following changes In living quarters took place durrag this period: 

Forty-six additional beds were wet up In the lectors' Quarters to 
accommodate the Increase In the number of doctors assigned to the 
stall. 

The Eixterns who were living in the W-|nu| f„n. were transferred to 
one or the buildings at .Mnsser-Oordon, and the vacated unit was 

set up for \>;iiiitm mothers who were formerly accommodated at the 

i 'iiavali'sccnt Home. 

The eleventh door, which has been used ae living quarters for the 
affiliate student nurses the hast fen years was set up again for patient 
cure. New rubber Booting material was laid on this Boor repla 
the worn out linoleum. 

The fourth Moor of the Colored T. B. building tvas also renowned and 
set up fur patients. 

A "Lost and Found" renter was established in September, 1949, and a 
policy Introduced whereby all found articles are sent to the Housekeeping 
Office where they may he claimed, and disposition may lie made ol .ill :i . 
which are not claimed after a period of six months. 

A mattress storage section was assigned to this department, in the 
basement, of the main building, and equipped with racks to facility 

storage of mattresses when needed. One thousand and fori*, -seven mattresses 
were renovated till : ' (407 fur the Main building am! fi 10 fur out-lying 

buildings.) 

Thirty Singer electric hand cleaners with attachments were purchased 
ami distributed to all floors and out -buildings for cleaning dry molts, mat- 
tresses, ceiling vents, upholstery, etc. 

Through the interest of Dr. Bernhard and the approval of the Hoard, two 
r,, >i Power combination floor scrubbing machines were purchased tor this 
department. The operation of the machine was demonstrated In the hospital, 
and although the machines have not yet been delivered we feel confident this 
will be one of the biggest lifts in floor cleaning we have experienced. 

In the Halvage Division, J1.S79.72 worth of salvage material was uold to 
salvage dealers. 



118 CHARITY HOSPITAI^-1949-1950 

The Orkin Exterminating Company and the National Window Cleaning 
Company have continued to give satisfactory services In the work of exter- 
mination and window cleaning. 

Five new positions were Introduced into this department the past year. 
Two Custodial Workers I for the doctors' quarters, beginning July 1. 194U. 
and three Seamstress I positions for the Sewing Section beginning October 
1, 19411. 

With the three additional positions in the Sewing Section, this section 
has heen able to give prompt service to all departments. We are deeply grate- 
ful for the consideration of this need, Lt.OOO new sheets were put into cir- 
i ■ulation the past year.

Mr... Renee Cable. Librarian, reaped on May 15 and waa ™»¥***L 
Mrs. Corlnne L. nine, former Assistant Librarian. Mrs. Do.othj T. Hart 
ha* been appointed AH»btam Librarian. Volunteer service »irtM«^ 
a valuable aid to the library staff. The total library volunteer hours during 
lb.' past year were 5SB. 

Reading Room Activities 

This year has seen an appreciable increase in the use of the library by 
the members of the medical and other professional staffs. There have been 
many comments on the wide selection of new books and current magazines. 
The collection of medical texts and monographs is used extensively by the 
doctors tor quick reference, and the medical journals are in constant demand. 
Requests, reserves, and suggestions for purchase are welcomed and considered 
fullv )>v the librarian. 

A monthly schedule of reading room displays with accompanying books 
b«a been worked out. These have attracted considerable interest One such 
■ lisplav recently dealt with "Medicine in Fiction', books with medical 
character* or background. A display with New Orleans guides waAtaxOm 
with 1-cal background is being prepared for the special interest of doctor* 
„,w to the hospital and community. Announcements containing the lo.Mt.oii. 
hours, and facilities of the library have been prepared for distribution '" 
new Internes and residents. 

Ward Activities 

The wards have been serviced by the library book truck twice weekly 
during the past year. A large percentage of patients borrow from the library 
and seem to appreciate both the books ami the visits from the hbrarans 
Every effort is made to provide reading material suitable for the Ind.vLlua 
patient. Small, light weight books are suggested for the debilitated or strte* 
i..-,l rest" patients, picture books and magazines for those unable to 
f.o-eign language publications when Indicated, and groups of volumes on a 
subject of interest or tor study for long-term patients. Transparent plastic 
jacekts are no* used to cover the dust jackets of new books making than 

m „re colorful and a. tractive as well as serviiuj t ■oteej the bi.aimgs. A 

effort is made to reach apprehensive and mildly depressed patients 
"w ho are often, at first, reluctant to read, n is very gratifying to see such a 
mtleni com.- to look forward to the library vtstta. Many contributions of 
k , J;« for the use of the patients have been received from 

;.,'■ 'us people of New Orleans. These arc grateful? accepted and. when 
]L«,un: acknowledged by the librarian. Nurses and ward personnel also 
cooperate to facilitate this phase of the Ihirary s activities.

ANNUAL REPORT 

SOCIAL SERVICE DEPARTMENT 

July I, 1949 to June 30, 1950 



This Ik the report of the Social Hew ire Department for the fiscal year, 
1849- ivr.ii. 

Daring the year the department has made many gains. There are still 
many problems which make it difficult tor the department to operate as 
tivelj as it iiii^-ht. Some problems are the result of lacks in community 
■ iiiri-s: others lucks within the hospital, 

The gitins which have been made include Home that we have wanted 

and needed for years: n psychiatric social work stair with a psychiatric 

work supervisor available to set up .1 stair development program, a peychiatrtsl 

lychlatric case consultant; an opportunity for the psychiatric social 

workers to attend professional meetings with expenses paid. This year throe 

Were able to go to national meeting with 

expenses paid. Laundry privileges and every other Saturday off are two 

thing* Hie stall has wanted for some time. This year for the first time I. SI' 

1 WOrfc students were placed in ihe department and for the first time 

the department bad staff sufficiently trained to si rvise a psychiatric social 

work student There were several physical improvements during the year: 
i new station wagon, fluorescent lights in the colored clinic office and student 
null and apace on the third floor for the psychiatric unit. Further gains in- 

' h ,! rworoings on • special sheet on the medical record a1 the request 

of th,. doctors, being able to employ a social worker just for the polio onli 

" ; work as .-i i imittee to suggest improvements In the 

"i"' 1 ' 1 " 1 ' ' "" department As .« resuu ,,r some of these recommendal 

th.' department has l.eeii able to nlin.|ui,sh some functions which were not 
medical BOOial wink us well as to relieve the workers of some clerical di 

Securing medication at cost through the hospital pharmacy has been beneficial 
to man] patients who otherwise would not have been able to secure the 

prescribed medication, but it bus an< additional work tor the department. 

The Hospital Intake Unit also felt the increase of work. This year :"■ 
patients were interviewed compared to SS.S61 last year. Even with two addi- 
tional workers it was not possible to investigate all potential ineligible patients 
which was unfortunate as the number of ineligible patients was Increasing 
also. 29% this year as compared to ..T; last year. 

Case Work Services 

The SO caseworkers are assigned in tin- sa waj that tic ■ L , . . i . . ■ -i are 

ed, to Tni.in. Tuberculosis, L8TJ Orthopedics, etc. with the Independent 

service divided betwt them. However, there are not enough workers t,, ■ 

two for each Service, so some services have one worker and other service!

Is anil in clinics but a full time worker was not available throughout the 
war. This y.-ar In an attempt tn keep the individual rase loads within bounds 
a new experiment was tried, that of centraUalng all incoming mall from social 
agencies and trying to clear up medical recommendations from the intorma- 
t|..n available on the chart. In tills way it was hoped thai the workers by 
being relieved of some correspondence would be able to she mora service

m the chsc load was Jaeger than the previous peak year, 194*. 
When the department had the largest staff It has ever had. As the admission* 
and the number of patients in the clinics Increased it was to be expected 
thai the Social Service load would Increase correspondingly. Furthermore 
is there were fewer vacancies some increase in the number of cases served 
would be natural. However the increase was out of proportion to the number 
Of workers available. 

Besides the coses, handled there are contacts with patients or mraii 
of their families which are nol considered cases but which do take time and 
which do help the patients. Contacts with patients or members of their 
•; during th« year amounted to 80,912. an Increase oi I9.ua] ,,ver last 
year. This flgun- does not show the total number of contacts for the volume 
of work makes It impossible to keep count of all contacts.

The largest number of referrals was. of course, to the Department of 
Public Welfare for financial assistance or nursing home care. The next 
largest \vsts to Vocational Rehabilitation for retraining so that patients with 
handicaps could earn their own living again. 

During the fiscal year the following statistics were kept in an attempt to 
give a picture of the work of the department: 

Interpretation to Patient and Patient Group 27,086 

Interpretation to Other Social Agencies 21,392 

Interpretation to Interested individuals 0.1X7

The bulk of the services rendered consisted of interpretation of the 
patient's medical needs to him, bla family and other social agencies. This 
Is to be expected since interpretation is involved in every case bandied. 

Arranging for patients to receive medication is Ota next large*! lervlce. 

These statistics, as In the instance of the case load, have shows ■ < 

able Increase during- the past year. None of these figures shows the total 
amount of work for as has been mentioned previously the rush and volume 
of work prevent the workers from keeping count of everything they do.

170 CHARITY HOSPITAL— 1949-1950 



The percentage of ineligtbles based upon the number of patients treated 
ts mil many much lower than that based on the number Interviewed. However, 
this shows an increase of 1% ovw the figures of the last fiscal year. 4' 
year as compared to 3% last year. Three per cent has always been considered 
the national average. This increase may be due partially to the fact that 
10.912 more persons were treated in the hospital this year than during the 
last and also to the fact that mure persons were Interviewed. 8,452 this year 
as compared to 6,104, as well as to the two additional workers. 

A total of 11,344 Cases were handled by the two workers on the two late 
Mm is in the accident rooms. Of the 11,8*4, 3,709 were found ineligible or 
Comparing these figures to those of the last fiscal year, 8,369 mora persons 
were interviewed by the two workers on the late shifts, with 2,980 more 
Bona Found Ineligible, or 18$ more, 20% last fiscal year as compared to 33% 
the current year. 

The table which follows is an analysis of the work of the two male 
investigators. 

The first of the Investigators came on the payroll as of 7/19/49 but 
needed thorough orientation ax to the program and work of the Unit before 
starting on home visits on 9/19/49. The second investigator began employ- 
ment on 10/17/19, going into the Held as of 11/8/4$. 

Selection Of cases for these investigators was made from the following 
sources: ]) other Interviewers in the Unit who had been unable to secure 
full or true information; 2) obstetrical cases in which the Income Bi 
'iiestiunal.le or husband was receiving a G. I. allowance: in the latter the 
husband frequently had a job while attending school; 8) failure of patients to 
viail tar Investigation; 4) possible non-residents and possible liability cases.

Because ii was thought desirable that charges for b leal 

cases be somewhat comparable to the charges for similar care In private 

i' ions, the hospital administration, effective December, 1949, raised the 

minimum charge tor this type of care to $7.x it was hoped that this would

over a throe weeks period showed that 80% were eligible, of which 2V% were

sion In regard to eligibility could not be made . u t a tentative diagnosis. 

which necessitated an examination by a doctor, it was decided that this, plus

existing program

There is little doubt that there are more Ineligible palients, but more eases*

that more ward cases could be handled.

174 CHARITY HOSPITAL— 1949-1950 



Teaching Program 

Forty students had Held work placements in Social Service: 20 In psychia- 
tric social work and 2d In medical .social work. Thirty-seven were students 
in. in the Tulane School of Social Work while three were from LSU. The 
department assumed responsibility for the supervision of nine students while 
four iield work Instructors, three from Tulane and one from LSU, supervised 
the remaining 31 students. This was the first time L.SU students had hi en 
placed here, it was also the first lime that supervision of psychiatric social 
work students li:id been provided by the department. Five more students were 
placed this year compared to last year and it pointed up the need fo* more 
space Cor students. For in view of the demand for social workers it is likely 
that the program of the two schools will expand. There Is no dearth of case 
material for students but the number which can be accepted Is limited by 
physical facilities and the fact that the schools have to provide for the super- 
vise, u of most of the students. The student training program is an important 
part of our work as it is not only stimulating to the staff to help with the 
orientation of students and to participate in the selection of case material for 
them, but also it enables the department to handle more cases and to give 
eases as much service as they want and need. The students handled sr.a 
■ in Increase of 215 fiws and no increase of four student* over lasl 
One the supervisors was the liaison between the two schools of social work 
and the department, planning seating arrangements, securing cases, and k 
Ing the units running smoothly. 

As Hutchinson Memorial Clinic set up its own Social Service Department. 
iln re was o l( participation in the undergraduate medical program at Tulane 
as there had been formerly. During the post graduate course In Pediatrics 
al| d P however, the department took part in seminars on the wards 

and clinics and round table discussions, all designed to show the team relation- 
-bi]i between the pediatrician, psychiatrist, social worker and psychologist 
in the treatment of children. 

With a psychiatric social worker In the Department of Psychiatry at LSI' 

our part In the teaching program for students on psychiatry was relinquished. 

At the request of Dr. R, L Simmons, Head of the Departim nt or Preventive 

Ifedloine and Public Health, I..3U, the Juniors on Preventive Medicine came 

i" tin Boolal Service Department in groups of four or five for two hour 

Informal discussions on the Social Aspects of Medicine. A similar program 
was successful with the s, mors last year and they had recommended that the 
plan be tried with the Juniors so that there would be a period in which the 
medical students could put into practice the points brought out In the dl 
-.> "ii. A different approach had to be attempted this year, since, for tbe most 
part, the Juniors had had little contact with Social Service whl 
had had n series of talks In their Junior year on Psychiatry phis seminars on 
techniques of interviewing and content of a social history. However, when the 
program with the Juniors was evaluated it was decided that they were no! 

usslons and that the department was not sufficiently st 
I" make It possible to encourage referrals (rum the medical students ami 
i i-pi.rtirn: hack "ti the rases referred hy tbe social workers. Therefore, ii was 

d t" ii' e tlii' discussions with the next class of Seniors eligible, which 

would be In tbe fall of 1961. 

Medical Staff 

Monthly meetings with the heads of the Pediatrics staff were h< I 
l.ith to discuss difficult cases for Which we had not been able to work OUl 
plans; ways to promote referrals on the Premature Unit, recording on the 
medical record. Social ward rounds were continued on Pediatrics and the 
Premature Unit. However, the number of workers available was not sufi'i 
In meet the demands of the Pediatrics staff, and both Chiefs of staff fell 



KKI'oirr of MBJDICAX RECORDS LD8RART 175 



much of their teaching fell flat because we could not adequately staff the 
Pediatrics service. It was hoped that should there be a full staff and a rela- 
tively stable staff ward rounds might be made on other services. 

School of Nursing 

Our participation In the teaching of student nurses was unchanged. One 
supervisor taught two courses, Sociology and Social Problems; one super- 
visor ied the discussions on the Social Aspects of Prematurity for the graduate 
nurses taking the course in premature nursing; on certain services, such as 
obstetrics and orthopedics, each new group of student nurses met with the 
worker assigned to the service to talk about the social aspects of that parti- 
cular illness. A supervisor talked with the pre-clinical group on Social 
Service and the Nurse. 

School of Dietetics 

As each class of student dletltianB registered a talk was given on the 
nun 'lions of tlie social worker and how the three, the social worker, the dieti- 
tian and the doctor worked together with patients. 

School of Practical Nursing 

This was a new program, A supervisor taught English and Arithmetic 
Review. 

Staff Developmtnt 

Supervisors' meetings were held weekly as were meetings of the social 
work staff. Besides, on some services especially those with several work) r 
such as psychiatry, group meetings with the supervisor were held regularly. 
The supervisors' meetings Included planning for service assignments, orienta- 
tion of new workers, reviewing material on supervision and orientation, dis- 
cussing administrative problems such as the use of the funds for medication, 
transportation, maintenance and appliances available to the hospital, methods 
of facilitating planning for discharged patients who are chronically 111. Tb« 
staff meetings were devoted to the development of a handbook for each service, 
ways to eliminate some of the Clerical duties performed by the workers because 
Of lack of adequate clerical si j adjustments and better working n-l.i- 

hips with the Department of Public Welfare. Tin- work or the staff on 
salaries and on analyzing the function of the medical social worker to try 
t<» eliminate responsibilities which might be handled clerically was a helpful 
experience to the members of the department as was serving on the joint 
committee with the Department of Public Welfare to facilitate the work of the 
two agent I 

A psychiatric case consultant was available for one and a half hours each 
week. While this was primarily for the discussion of cases under treatment 
<m psychiatry, difficult problems on other services were present. -d and dis- 
cussed. Current books and articles were available for reading and dlacui 

It was possible for three members of the psychiatric social work staff to 

l professional meetings. Orthopsychiatry. National Conference of Social 

Work and the Family Service Association of America Institute, with expenses 

paid out of Mental Health Funds. They not only got a lot out of attending 

meetings, but all three brought back their stimulating expsrienO 
the full stalT. 

Participation with Community Agencies 

By means of (bis function, the department Joins with other social workers 
and community groups to try to devise ways to meet the problem of lack of 
areas for various groups of patients.

FUNDS 
Patients* Welfare Fund 

This fund which has been available since May. 1943 and which amounts 
to $10tl a munth may be used for both white and negro patients without 
restrictions as to amount or purpose. Since the other funds have limitations 
tbe Patients' Welfare Fund is exhausted early each month. During this fiscal 
year there was an increase of 278 In the number of patients served and an 
ass of ?58.97 in the amount expended. However, the total amount was 
above the budgetary limit of $100 a month. The following tabic shows 
the expenditures from the Patients' Welfare Fund for the y

This year the Patients' Welfare Food was used largely for transportation 

and medication. Money was necessary for transportation to enable the 

a return home: there are no agencies which Include in I heir program 

paying transportation for intranstate residents. As long as this is true it 

tuny be expected that transportation will absorb a large part of tl> 

tures of the fund.

17S CHARITY HOSPITAI^1949-1950 



Although the number of patients helped has continued to Increase tin- 
amount spent has fluctuated. The latter Is accounted for by the fact that 
then' was not always a limit to the amount which could be spent. 

Insulin Fund 

The Insulin Fund which has been in existence for a number of years i> 
the oldest of the funds. It is made op of yearly contributions of $500 from the 
Price Foundation secured by Mister Stanislaus and by allocations from tin- 
Board ui Administrator*, in November 1948 the Board voted tu allow expendi- 
tures up to $150 a month until 7/1/49 when 1300 a month was allocated. The 
Increase has been a decided help In view of the Sickles Fund's policy change 
and curtailment in the public assistance program. 

Muring the year a total of 8S0 patients were given insulin at a cost of 
i DO. The following allows the expenditures for the year: 

July 1, 1949 Cash Balance * 236.64 

l teceipta during year 3,600.00 

Total $3,836.64 

Expenditures during year 2,884.90 

June 30, 1950 Cash Balance * 961.74 

As compared with the figures for the year 1948*49 there was an inn. 
of $596.77 in the amount spent but the number of patients served show 
decrease of 24. 

As was anticipated the $300 a month allocated to the insulin Fund t.\ the 
' i.: Admlnistratom has met the demands for free insulin of tln.se 
patients whose needs are not provided for by the Department of Pui 

fare. The f I has been used in the main for those patients whose marginal 

Incomes do BOi permit the purchase of insulin and for patients who are pend- 
ing Department of Public Wi jJstance. Until April, 19G0 the Welfare 
Department Was able to provide funds in the grants for insulin when m 
sary. However, with the general cut in public assistance In many fa.wa the 
expense of this medication cannot he met. The figures for May and June 
BhOW a marked Increase due to this factor. The assignment of a full Uin. 
worker on the diabetic service also has been, no doubt, a factor in the I 
use of the fund. It Is quite fortunate that a reserve has been accumulated

An outstanding volunteer project was the collection of a library for I lie 
Musser Gordon Unit of Charity Hospital. This project was undertaken by the 
New Orleans Southern Pacific Women's Service Club early in the sprint;. 
and when dedication ceremonies were held on June 2nd. over live hundred 

( ks. and several hundred magazines bad been collected. Shelves for the 

books were placed In the Recreation Room at Musser Gordon, and several 
mm. ill adjoining rooms were furnished as reading rooms. Since Musser Q 
formerly had no books for the patients, and since reading Is one of the few 
activities possible for tubercular patients, this project was particularly Im- 
portant and worthwhile. 

In cooperation with the Neuropsychiatry Unit, several square dai 

were conducted by volunteers for the patients on this unit. The ladies Of the 
Si Charles Avenue Presbylerian Church furnished each patient on this null 
with a Christmas present, and have undertaken furnishing their Christmas 
prese nts as a permanent project.

Since September, 1923, the Orleans Parish School Board has employed 

., teacher to Instruct the children who are patients on tin- Children"* Floor 
of Charity Hospital. On April 14, 1942. classes were established for the negro 
children who are patients on the Ninth Floor. 

In addition to the general educational value of assisting; the patient to 
up with his grade, the hospital classes have a definite therapeutic value. 

The familiar atmosphere of the school environment absorbs the child's 
Interest and helps him adjust to the complex and new hospital situation. 

- n „. r , children are anxious to keep up with their studies. If Illness 

and hospitalization deprive them of schooling they feel that they are being 
punished. 

If the child Is kept busy, either with his hands or his mind, his menial 
is more healthy and the result Is a better functioning of the whole 
Individual. More rapid recovery results from such a condition. 

LIBRARY 

K-u-h classroom Is enriched with an excellent group of library books 
on all grade levels. The child patient learns to select ids own reading 
niateria! and how to borrow books according to procedures used in all 
public libraries. This year the library facilities were expanded as f.»l
